Common Good – A resource for Youth Workers

Northern Ireland stands at a crossroads facing an uncertain future. The impact and long-term consequences of the current climate on young people is particularly concerning.

Youth Link believes that young people play a central role in the transformation of society in Northern Ireland.  The Common Good resource equips young people to recognise their role and be fired towards a vision of building a just, peaceful and flourishing society.  

The Common Good resource can be used to creatively engage with young people about good relations and peace building in Northern Ireland.

We’ve two events coming up soon for youth workers, volunteers and other professionals who want a flavour of the resource.  Spaces are limited, so book soon.

During the training, we will:

  • Explain the importance of Common Good as Northern Ireland emerges out of conflict
  • Explore the reasons why the resource has been developed
  • Give a flavour of the activities that can be used with young people
  • Provide a copy of the resource to take home

This is a collaboration between two projects within Youth Link, NI Community Relations Council core funding and a Shared Island: A Home for Young People in the World funded by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
